Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

One Little Word - October, November & December
I decided not to include the October and November prompts - one was a painted background topped with a letter to myself and the other was another photo prompt. However, I did complete the Facts & Feelings Worksheet Ali provided as a wrap-up for the December prompt. (You can click on the page for a larger version if you'd like to read my journaling.)
I have to admit that I've definitely had lots of FUN with my very first word! As the year comes to a close, I know that this word will continue to be a part of my life and that I will be more aware of the FUN in every day now that I've spent a year focusing on and acknowledging the FUN in our life.
I'm definitely going to choose a word for next year. In fact, I've already been contemplating possible words and what I'd like to be more aware of in 2015. Of course, I'll be sharing that journey with y'all here on my blog! Which brings me to a huge THANK YOU to those of you who have followed along with my FUN journey this year. Your encouraging comments and how you've enjoyed my posts and photo collages have made this journey all the more FUN!
I'll be wrapping up my FUN year with one more post at the end of December, sharing my final reflections card and last monthly photo collage as well as some additional thoughts on the difference this word has made in my life in 2014. How will you be wrapping up your word this year? Are you ready to let it go and announce a new word for 2015?
